When it comes time for an office or store remodel, who you choose to do the work has a significant impact on your business’s future. Well-designed office space can make your employees feel warm, comfortable, and safe, and therefore, more productive. Similarly, a well-designed storefront will appeal to buyers and make them more likely to linger in your store.
But how do you find the right commercial builders?
1. Not Considering Your Budget
First, make sure the commercial builders you hire are respectful of your budgetary concerns. It can be difficult to find a happy medium between your vision and your budget. However, a good commercial contractor will be able to help you prioritise.
2. Not Checking Out Reviews and Testimonials
Next, be sure to research any potential commercial builders you’re considering hiring. Look on their website and social media pages to find past client reviews and testimonials. If you can’t find them, use a search engine (like Google) and type in their name and “reviews” to find the information you’re looking for.
3. Using Price Alone to Guide Your Decision
When planning an office renovation, remember that the right commercial contractor isn’t necessarily the cheapest one. Like in any industry, you often get what you pay for. We’re not saying you shouldn’t compare and contrast prices, just don’t base your decision purely off of which contractor is the least expensive.
If different contractors have different prices, find out why. For example, one could have better warranties, work with higher-quality materials, etc.
4. Not Getting a Written Proposal or Quote
As suggested above, you should get various quotes from competing commercial builders in your area. However, when you choose to do business with a contractor, make sure you receive a written proposal or quote.
Let’s face it, in any construction project, unexpected things are going to come up. However, there should be a limit to how much you have to pay for. Don’t let a commercial contractor quote you a screaming deal only to add more costs as the project progresses.
5. Choosing a Commercial Builder With Poor Communication
When hiring commercial builders for an office remodel, you also need to choose professionals who know how to communicate with their clients. While you can’t expect them to answer phone calls in the middle of the night, they should make themselves available to you as much as possible to answer any questions or address concerns.
